Adrian,

Of course there’s a lot of water under the bridge since the last NAUUG –
however the sentiment back then was for the lab to build a number of api functions
on top of the repository and not give us access to DICT directly. If this has
changed, I’ll sit corrected and rejoice.

I don’t think I said that Knut, I said that our preferred way was to provide APIs because they would be future proof against any future repository changes. 

But it has always been our intention that we would document the Uniface 10 dictionary when complete (with Uniface 10.3).

Even if we did not, we can’t stop access to those tables. 

So to put an end to any more fake news.. 

Unless something changes in the next couple of weeks. (1 1/2 sprints)

The 10.3 release will have the finalised Uniface 10 repository, and will include the umeta file to import into the IDE.

This was also my recollection of the conversation discussing access to the DICT in the future — that the API would be the preferred method, but access would still be open to developers as it always had been. Unfortunately, that discussion happened at the last conference which was prior to my first Uniface 10 migration (hoping not to be my last). I’ve had several conversations with Uniface folks since then and while I still hate that I don’t have access to the DICT currently in 10.2, I’m willing to wait on the promise that it will be restored in 10.3….along with other important functions already discussed at length with a “passenger”. I’m hoping to possibly see these positive changes in New Orleans in February…..or at least hear about them if those last 1.5 sprints end up in a light job instead Laugh

Don’t think there was ever going to be any point in documenting DICT or providing UMETA to import with Uniface 10.2. We always knew, and were public with the fact that it was not the final thing, and was definitely going to change.
